Question about Intel D865GBF Motherboard

1 Answer

Motherboard is not seeing the HD

I just upgraded to Vista and now I am having problems. I have a Intel D865GBF MB with a WD 30G HD. My second HD is a WD Sata 400 GB but that is another problem. For about an hour after the upgrade the system was working fine. Then after a reboot, the MB stopped seeing the EIDE 30GB HD. Now the system will not boot. The MD seems to be working ok in that it boots up and runs the power up stuff. However, it will not recognize the EIDE drive. Any suggestions??

Re: Motherboard is not seeing the HD

Generally its not a good idea to run both ide and sata drive at the same time.

if you are lucky in your bios it will have a emulate sata as pata/ide drives.

turn this on and be sure to select the ide drive with the OS on it as the master drive so it boots first.

also if you are doing this you will also need to change the jumpers on the sata drive as well to make it a slave and not a master otherwise you will have two master drives and it won't boot.

good luck

I have this motherboard and it won't post. The HD light stays on but does not appear to be spinning. I swapped HD's...same problem. I think the MB is bad. Any suggestions on what to check next?

If the mother board will not complete the POST, (Power On Self Test) changing the drive will have no effect. You might want to remove all memory and check again ... your memory could be causing the problem. Remove all boards and attachments except mouse, keys and monitor of course so you can see what is going on.

If it will not POST, get another board.

Basics ... always go back to basics.

Thanks for your interest in

Sorry bud it will not accept any new drivers afet installing Vista. WinXP would have allowed you this freedom, now the best option is t change your sound card which is certified as Vista compatible and insert it onto any PCI slot & Vista will recognize it......sodeep
